There's one guaranteed way to get to my heart. Doughnuts. I'm sure I'm not alone in this, and Krispy Kreme is well aware.
Starting yesterday, Krispy Kreme introduced a limited edition doughnut range, inspired by favourite flavours of the past. To celebrate the launch, Krispy Kreme has turned their Instagram page into a retro-inspired virtual arcade with four (you guessed it) Doughnut themed 90s-inspired video games for each of the four flavours in the Throwback party range.
The virtual arcade will be playable as mini-games through Krispy Kreme's Instagram stories, where those interested will be prompted to
"swipe up" to play. Fans can compete with others to place on an online leaderboard, with prizes up for grabs, including the major prize, a year's supply of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
Check out the list of mini-games below!
Cookie Dough’s Krispy Kart - Fans can get behind the wheel go-kart-style and race their way through rolls of dough.
Finger Bun Fighter - Players will hit the virtual streets and kick their way through the icing.
Fairy Bread Fantasy - Gamers can live out their childhood fantasy in this magical platform game.
Choc Brownie Batter Bash - This puzzle game will have fans smashing their way through chunks of chocolate.
Chief Marketing Officer, Russell Schulman stated “We all love reminiscing about childhood memories and especially when tied to the food and pop culture of the time. We wanted to capture that and express it in the best way possible by creating a limited-edition doughnut range that Krispy Kreme fans of all ages can enjoy and celebrate these memories.”
I for one can't wait to partake in some Finger Bun Fighter with a few tasty doughnuts stuffed in my cheeks.
The Throwback Party doughnut range is available at Krispy Kreme stores in New Zealand right now!
